Over 1.8 million VW cars are being recalled in China due to a faulty fuel pump.

The Chinese consumer watchdog reported the recalled vehicles were made by VW plus its two domestic partners SAIC and FAW.

It’s believed the fault could potentially cause the affected vehicles’ engines to stall due to an electrical issue with the pump.

All repairs will be conducted free of charge and will commence in December.

Recently VW have recalled a number of models globally, though it has not been confirmed whether the current Chinese recall is related to the same issues.

The recall applies to Magotans made between 2007 and 2014 and the CC produced domestically by FAW-Volkswagen between 2009 and 2014, as well as the 2011-2015 Passat made by SAIC Volkswagen.

The country’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said that 19,000 imported models are also affected.

Volkswagen became aware of the problem after Chinese authorities began an investigation in 2016.

This comes hot on the heels of a US recall last week, that saw 281,000 cars affected by similar sounding problems with the fuel pump.
